Through my travels I have had the privilege of meeting so many wonderful people all over the world. These people are school children, medical professionals, entrepreneurs, and community leaders who work hard to make a difference in their communities. While I’d like to be able to personally help every one of these awesome people, but I can’t, so that’s where you come in! Each of these wonderful people need your support to be able to continue their work and better their futures. If you feel compelled to give, 100% of the money you give or supplies you donate will be given to the person you choose, and proof of receipt will be provided to you. Just click the “Donate” button and be sure to specify in the “add note” section who you’d like to receive your donation. Thanks for helping to make a difference!
Leo is a 30 year old medical student from Havana, Cuba. Previously, Leo had been working for 7 years as dialysis nurse when he felt that he would be able to do more for his community by becoming a doctor. Leo is currently in his first year of medical school and loves his studies. However, in order to help provide for his family, Leo frequently misses school in order to work as a tour guide around the city.
